All-New Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2 vs Blizzak DM-V1

Bridgestone winter / snow tires¬†are renowned for their outstanding winter traction. For many years, the Blizzak DM-V1¬†topped the list of best Studless Ice & Snow tires for light trucks, SUVs and crossover vehicles. Its combination of great snow traction, ice traction, wet grip and durability made it the most recommended tire in the category since its...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Latitude Tour

The best wet and dry traction I've yet experienced. A quiet and comfortable ride on the highway, with confident cornering and braking in the city. An outstanding tire.About as sticky as my prior Scorpions, stickier than the Geolandars I installed before that. Much smoother and much quieter than both. They might be a touch less sporty than the Scorpions; I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich Advantage T/A

Bought these tires to replace the old, cracked prime wells on my car. An immediate upgrade. They are browning fast, but I'll attribute that to them being a year old when I received them. Very good braking performance. They do react slightly slowly as they are a heavier tire. However, they have tread for days and I anticipate they will react faster once they...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology

MUST READ! Winter driving experience! Vehicle: 2007 Cobalt SS Supercharged 17PSI LSD 5-Speed Manual. (Wisconsin)Winter experience: I am highly surprised with these tires, everyone was telling me I would not move a FWD with a 45 series tire. I completely disagree! These tires are incredible!! I have driven in snow up to 5 in the worst hilly area you could...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Continental ContiProContact

These came standard on my 2010 Outback. They are great tires in the summer, including in the rain, but once a little snow starts to fall or it'd cold enouhg for ice, they're terrible. They are very quick to hydroplane and lose traction, especially in the slush that forms on highways during a storm, even at low to moderate speeds. Braking and steering are...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli P Zero All Season Plus

I am writing this review as I'm purchasing my second set of P Neros from Tire Rack. First of all, there should be a category above Spirited for the type of driver I am. To make matters worse for my tires, I live in the Appalachian mountains so curvy roads with inconsistent pavement mean my tires don't last long. The hard cornering & braking that mountain...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Hey Guys,I just wanted to share my experience with this amazing Michelin product. I own a modified 2014 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 which dyno-tuned at 413hp@407tq. Previously, I purchased Mickey Thompson Street Comp 255/40/19 & 295/35/19 tires about 4 months ago, an extreme summer performance tire. Well the tires were great if you are a road course/autocross...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

I had old A/S tires and they went bad only after 26,000 miles. Also noise was quite bad. New A/S 3 are much better as far as lateral road holding and cornering. Braking is also much improved. Cornering is phenomenal and fully compatible to Super Sports that I have on my MBW M3. Road noise is okay, but still quite high. Road feel is good and predictable. Yet...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S Plus

I replaced a full set of Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S's with these vastly superior tires after only 24,000 miles on those tires, when they developed bubbles in the sidewalls. I have nothing detrimental to say regarding the Pilot Sport A/S Pluses. They performed well in dry, wet, tropical downpour and winter Nor'easter conditions. In the very few times I...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Defender

I've had my set for 6 months, and a little over 12,000 miles. I can honestly say that this is the best all-around, all-season tire that I've ever driven on. For city driving, the braking and acceleration, on wet, icy and snowy conditions had been excellent: predictable and sure. This tire's performance at highway speeds ranging from 65mph - 110mph, over long...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

12/14/13 - I just picked up my car, and with several inches of snow last night and snowing this morning, I was able to test these new tires in wet, slush, light snow, and thick snow on my drive home. These tires are unbelievablely great!!! I tested the tires from 40mph to a stop. In wet and slush conditions, I was not able to activate my ABS no matter how...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS60

What a significant improvement over ANY all season tires on ice, light and heavy snow!My 3 month old Dunlop SP sport 5000 tires were rated with the best snow and ice traction among all other all season tires in the latest consumers report survey, but the car can't even stop without sliding out of control when I reach intersections on slight icy conditions....  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1

I haven't had the opportunity to try them out in deep snow yet, but its been cold and slushy...nothing to really challenge the winter handling. I did have the misfortune of a near collision on the highway when a car suddenly tapped the guardrail on the left lane and rebounded into my path. In dry cold conditions I had to brake very hard, swerve right,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Blizzak WS70

For RWD owner considering getting WS70:The snowstorm came 2 days ago, and I put this sets of wheel and tires on my E46 Coupe RWD. That night, when there is at least 3 inches plus snow outside. I went out to test drive. (I ran the same car last winter with Michelin Super Sports, and I almost died so many times, pure luck.) OH BTW I got Quaife LSD for...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Replaced Eagle GT A/S after 25k miles, shouldn't have waited so long, as these completely transformed the car for the better. In dry performance up there with dedicated Summer tires, wet traction, handling and braking are one of best tires I've ever owned.Recent ice storm here in DFW demo'd winter capabilities. Was able to get around, alebeit cautiously,...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force R1

I put 23 heat cycles on these tires, 9 of them at the Circuit of the Americas, the rest at VIR. They stuck like glue at COTA causing me to lift the inside wheel on a number of corners, including sweepers that surprised me. Driving like my hair was on fire did take some life out of the outer sections of the tires but I had them flipped and got 12 more good...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3 (W- or Y-Speed Rated)

I have bought these tires last year in august. And they are wonderful! I haven't had any slippage from them outside of deep snow and ice. And even in those conditions they perform better than expected. In fact they are scary in snow and ice. Because they grip so well you can be deceived to believe you can drive as if you were on dry ground. But you can drive...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hoosier R7

So R7s are my first step up from R888s, Advans, Pilot Sport Cups and Pirelli Corsa (on newer Porsches) and other like R comps through 10 years of track experience. I replaced worn out R888 245/45/17's at 4 corners of my trusty old track prepared '98 M3 - first thing of note, the tires are substantially wider in sectional width than like sized other brands of...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop Direzza DZ102

Best upgrade on the car so far (more enjoyable than full coilovers, sway bar, strut bar, big brakes, power mods, etc). These Dunlop DZ102's are mounted to lightweight wheels (15x7 Advanti Storm S1), and their increased grip and responsiveness has transformed the car. Their predictably linear traction and communicative steering feedback tempts you to carry...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the BFGoodrich g-Force COMP-2 A/S

After installing the G-Force Comp 2 A/S back in June, my initial response was overwhelmingly positive. My admiration for this enthusiastic all season performance tread continues to grow even stronger with time. I have now logged trips which include long distance miles to errands around town. The tire proves to be a smart choice in both extremes. Someone...  Read More
